Hi All,

Im regrettably looking to sell my SLK 55 R171 late 2005 due to my first child arrival. I would rather sell it here and it goes to a loving home opposed to selling to a boy racer or someone who is going to add loads of miles per year.

Key selling point is the Full Mercedes Service history since new (including minor service in Nov), only 48k miles, 2 careful previous owners (I have only driven 20k miles in last 4.5 years) and the huge specification (every optional extra as far as I'm aware).

Here is the breakdown copied from another ad I have online.

  • Full Mercedes Service History with log book and Mercedes stamps. Last Service @ Mercedes Epsom on 06/11/2017. Electronic service history on Mercedes dealership computers from last 3 years.
  • Full history of Mercedes work carried out from MOT's to spare parts. Original Mercedes paperwork kept for all work carried out to date.
  • Very Low mileage - only 48k miles
  • New Brakes (front and back pads) fitted November 2017
  • New Battery fitted November 2017
  • 4 Matching, Performance, High Speed, Mercedes rated Tyres with at least 7mm tread remaining on each
  • 2 previous owners (including myself). Previous female owner from 0 to 28k miles
  • Fitted with every optional extra available at time of purchase (Full List below)
  • 2 Mercedes Key fobs - seat/mirror configuration is customisable per key
  • 5.4L Hand built V8 naturally aspirated engine. 0-60 in under 5 seconds, Top speed 155mph (electronically limited to 155mph)
  • Sports mode, Comfort mode and Manual/TipTronic mode to cater for all situations
  • Hard top convertible with one touch automatic operation for raising/lowering the rooftop
  • 7G Automatic Tip-Tronic gearbox with paddle shift gear change levers on Steering wheel
  • Smart Top module fitted - allows the driver to fully operate the Convertible roof (opening and closing) from the remote. Fully control opening and closing the windows (including rear quarter windows) from remote. Operate lights (Bi-Xenon) remotely for approaching and departing the car.

Dashboard Computer

  • Washer Fluid sensors with dash alerts
  • Service history with dash alerts
  • Fuel economy views for MPG from start, MPG to date, miles remaining on current fuel tank - many more features
  • Convenience and lighting controls customisable from dashboard computer
Based on the market - I have seen many similar cars with half the spec, double the miles and without full Mercedes service history going for around £20k. I'm open to sensible offers, I'm realistically looking close to £17k mark in an ideal world but can lower that for the right buyer. Im in no rush to sell so happy to wait for the right buyer/price.

Happy to answer any questions you may have, I have plenty more pictures and car can be seen in Surrey.

Kind Regards

In no particular order
1. For sale threads are not editable by the poster. If you need a change made, please contact a
2, Thread should include price, pictures, contact info like email address. Try to not post a phone
number. If you have less than 15 posts, you won't be able to reply by pm as newbies won't be able
to pm the seller either since they also probably have less than the required 15 posts to do so.
3. Why are threads uneditable? In case of a dispute, the seller cannot go back and say something
was X when it was Y, because the seller changed it in his favor

Low mileage, service records, and in the low twenties, it should be an easy sale. Screen all buyers, or you'll get a lot of wackos annoying you.
